St. Andrew's Parent Teacher Association

St Andrew's School

St. Andrew's Parent Teacher Association

The school has a flourishing Parent and Teacher Association that works in close partnership with the school. SAPTA (St. Andrew's PTA) provides support through its fund-raising activities as well as providing an important link between home and school.

SAPTA has three principal roles:

  • Raising funds for new equipment and experiences
  • Hosting events for the children such as the Christmas Fayre and Summer Fete
  • Offering all parents the chance to be part of an inclusive school community

Anyone can be a member of SAPTA, whether you are a parent, grandparent or staff member. It is a chance to get involved with you school community and enjoy some of the events and activities on offer.

The generosity of the time donated by our committee members is astonishing.

Committee members arrange a host of activities and functions across the school and play a vital role in raising funds for the school, to provide those ‘icing on the cake’ extras, which often make learning more exciting and rewarding.

Since SAPTA’s creation over 15 years ago, over £90,000 has been raised by parents, teachers and supporters.

This has enabled SAPTA to provide playground equipment, purchase a mini bus and invest in a set of laptops, as well as purchasing many other items such as soft play resources for the Pre-School and an outdoor table tennis table.

We meet quarterly and have an Annual General Meeting in the Spring Term. We welcome new members who bring fresh ideas and approaches.  Any help contributed to support our events ultimately, and most importantly, benefits each and every child at St. Andrew’s School. For further details please speak to one of the Administrators in the school office.
